I have to say I really like Sabathia's personality, and think he will be a nice addition to the Yanks just for that (not to mention that he's a heck of a pitcher.) Given that CC was rocking those big diamond earrings at the presser, I'm wondering if the Yankees style codes are going to be relaxed this year. Will Sabathia get to wear his baseball cap askew?
The only naysayer is my cat, C.C. - she was hissing at the screen over somebody stealing her name!
As for the other initialed pitcher, A.J. Burnett, he was as more likeable than I expected. Seeing him with his kids in Yankee gear was cute.
Let's hope all this era of good feeling translates to the field. There are only 56 days to pitchers and catchers!
This very good day for the Yankees was capped by Boston Red Sox owner John Henry making a big announcement about Mark Teixeira:
"We met with Mr. Teixeira and were very much impressed with him," Henry said in an e-mail time-stamped 10:45 p.m. "After hearing about his other offers, however, it seems clear that we are not going to be a factor."Will Teixeira be a Yankee? Dare to dream!
What did you think of the press conference? Tell us about it!
